Sprint’s new CEO Marcelo Claure has stirred things up after only a few days on the job. In a town hall meeting with employees of Sprint, Claure laid out plans to make the company into another disruptive carrier in the market similar to what T-Mobile has been doing. Claure’s plan has three phases – cutting prices, improving the network and lowering costs.
Earlier today a video from Sprint was accidentally released showing what appeared to be the HTC One (E8) coming to the network. The cheaper, plastic-bodied version of the HTC One (M8) flagship was released in China earlier this summer. It was unclear whether the device would make it to the U.S. market at the time.
We learned earlier today about specifications for the upcoming Moto X+1, and now we have new images to put its 5.2-inch display into perspective. The image above shows what is allegedly the Moto X+1 (left) next to the original Moto X. The height is certainly larger and the bezels on the sides have been shrunk. It also seems that the top and bottom of the device will feature quality speaker grills. The original Moto X has a 4.7-inch display, so the jump to 5.2 inches is definitely noticeable.
The same source, HelloMotoHK, also posted an image of what is said to be a new DROID device. The design is more rounded and similar to the Moto line of devices. This could have to do with a Moto Maxx device being in the works. Still, though, the image suggests that on-screen navigation buttons are not present. Identical buttons from last year are back in action.
Hit the break for another image of the Moto X+1 and the image of an alleged new DROID device.
There are many options when it comes to editing a photograph on a mobile device. You can go with an all-in-one like Instagram that is an editor and social network. Or you can use the bundled editing features shipped with your device. But there are standalone editing applications becoming increasingly popular due to the options set and the lack of social network features. The newest photography editor is Afterlight, making the move to Android after a successful tenure on iOS.
Simplicity with an impressive amount of tools, filters, and texures is the focus for Afterlight. There are fifteen tools to adjust an image. For filters, Afterlight has fifty nine and some of which are borrowed from other platforms. And there are sixty six textures to keep things different. Once you edit an image, you can always share it with other apps. Afterlight is $0.99 and the amount of features really justify its small price.
Hit the break for the gallery and download links.
For multilingual folks, using Google Search can be a little bit of a hassle. The voice search feature would only support a single language at any given time. If another language was necessary, they would have to go through the settings and change the default language. Google has realized that one language at a time is not practical and has opened up the amount of simultaneous language support. Now, a user can have Google Search prepared to listen to five languages all at once. You can change languages in the middle of a search and it will still return accurate results (to the best of its ability).

When the Moto X was announced, there were complaints that the specifications were not cutting edge and on par with other flagship handsets. Motorola stood by its device. Nevertheless, it did not perform how the company had hoped. So with the Moto X+1 right around the corner, Motorola has a chance to deliver what everyone really wants. A recent benchmark showed that the device would have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor. Another benchmark making its way around today, though, says otherwise.
